Man dies in Imo massive flood

A young man has died as a result of a massive flood arising from torrential rainfall on Saturday in Owerri, the capital of Imo State.
The young man, whose name was given simply as Izuchukwu as the time of filing this report died at West End Road area of the state capital.

It was learnt that Izuchukwu never knew the culvert was among the ones broken in the on going urban renewal programme of the state government

It was further learnt that Izuchukwu was rushed to the Federal Medical Centre, Owerri, where he was confirmed dead after doctors battled in vain to save his life.

“The man was confirmed dead at FMC Owerri. It is unfortunate that this carelessness has claimed this life,” a source said.
